I have pocket 77's in the SB and no notes on any of the players as I just sat down.
MP raises 3BB - at this point I think about calling as according the 15-to-1 rule would be ok (10*15=1.5 and villain has 2€).
BTN raises to 0.42 - if he had just called it would have made my decision even easier (altough I am out of position).
But 0.40€*15=6€ ,so not completely what I need + I am out of position and don't know how if he will continue post flop.

Therefore I fold.

I this a correct play?

Yup, exactly. Calling is -EV in the long-run here since you're not getting the implied odds to call for the 15 to 1 rule for set-mining. Good fold here with 77.
